The American hip hop duo Suicide Boys (stylized as $uicideboy$) was formed by cousins Ruby da Cherry (called $uicide Leopard) and Scrim (stylised $crim) in 2014. They gained fame by sharing their music on SoundCloud. The themes of their music surround suicidal ideation and substance use disorder. Their music is made of self-produced beats and contains harsh lyrics. They made a pact to commit suicide if their musical career did not work out by the time they were 30 years old. This idea enabled them to get their alias $uicideboy$. They operate under their own music label named G*59 Records. Their net worth is estimated to be around 2,000,000 USD.
How Did Suicide Boys Become Rich?
Born as Scott Anthony Arceneaux Jr. on 11th April 1989, Scrim is the older one of the duo. He was born to parents Scott Arceneaux Sr. and Toni Arceneaux. His inspiration for producing music mainly came from Kanye West and T-Pain. Scrim used to earn money by selling drugs. Purchasing his very first laptop from the money earned through the drug sales, he became a DJ. When he joined the Delgado Community College, people hired him as a DJ for parties which ended up further fueling his passion for music and working as a DJ. Working as a DJ, however, was not Scrim’s only job. He also worked by selling used furniture. Unfortunately, after three years at this job, he got fired for the tattoos he got on his hands. Scrim also used to hold an in-house deal with Universal/Republic Records.
Ruby da Cherry was born a year later, on 22nd April 1990. He was born with the name Aristos Norman Petrou to a Greek Cypriot father and an American mother. His father Pavlov Petrou got an athletic scholarship to the University of New Orleans and used to be a former association head coach at Mount Carmel Academy. At the ripe age of seven, his interest in music kicked in and he learnt to play the violin. At the age of ten, he learnt how to play the drums. He worked as a waiter at his father’s restaurant until 2015. Ruby da Cherry joined a band named Vapo-Rats as the drummer. However, his bandmates’ lack of interest in the band’s future led him to leave Vapo-Rats and pursue a musical career in hip hop with his cousin Scrim.
The very first project of the cousins as a duo was a three-track EP named “Kill Yourself Part 1: The Suicide Saga”. They released it on SoundCloud and Bandcamp in June 2014. This garnered them the attention of Bones, a famous underground rapper. Nine iterations of this series were released by the duo in the following months.
The release of the duo’s EP “South Side Suicide” in 2015 caused them to break through. They collaborated with Pouya, a rapper hailing from South Florida, which gained them, even more, fame and popularity. The summer of 2016 saw the release of their EP “Radical Suicide” which became number 17 on the Billboard Rap Charts. This was the first time the duo’s name was listed on a mainstream musical chart. In September 2018, they released their debut album “I Want to Die in New Orleans.”
In 2023, their song “Paris” crossed over 150 million views on YouTube and became Suicide Boys’ most viewed music video. On the other hand, their Spotify page lists their song “Kill Yourself (Part III)” to be the most played song with over 290 million plays.
Scrim and Ruby da Cherry have not limited themselves to releasing music only as a duo. They have released a lot of solo music alongside collaborating individually with other well-known musicians. They both have released several solo mixtapes. Scrim released his first solo album with the title “A Man Rose from the Dead” in 2020.
With the exception of guest producers and instrumental loops that they purchase, Suicide Boys’ music is entirely self-produced. This is mainly done by Scrim under the pseudonym of Budd Dwyer.
